“Pretty awesome gallery”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Watched Sheva Chaya blow glass and discuss Rabbi Nachman's stories in Tzfat. Definitely the highlight of my trip to Israel by far. Great town in general to walk around and get lost, but Sheva Chaya is a compelling artist and storyteller who isn't as eager to sell trinkets as make a connection in this holy city. Highly recommended.

Sheva Chaya was out of this world! When in Safed, visit the gallery of Sheva Chaya. Glass blowing demonstration. Water Colors. But most interesting is Sheva Chaya herself and to hear from her about her journey from Denver to Princeton to Safed. A must see while in Safed!

“Creativity and Spirituality”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

My friend and I dropped in to the gallery, and the minute we passed through the door we both connected immediately with the art and glass and both the artist and her husband. We were very impressed by their sincerity and ability to articulate what it is that Safed and its very special environment contributes to their artistic vision. It was an exceptional experience.

“Amazing art gallery”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

My wife and I visited the gallery in Tzfat and loved her art work. She and her husband were amazing and we enjoyed talking with her about the meanings behind the various pieces which helped us to pick out some that were very meaningful in our lives. If you find yourselves in Tzfat you should definitely check this place out!

“Art Gallery”
Reviewed June 1, 2008

My family stopped by the gallery on our trip to Safed. What a beautiful location. The building has gorgeous arched stone ceilings. Very pretty court yard out front. The artist gave us a demonstration of how she blows glass. The gallery has beautiful water color paintings and blown glass pieces. Definitely worth stopping by and checking it out.
